WITH A move to a new venue after 12 years at its previous location, the annual LIVE UK Summit conference and networking event is adding new panels and features to the one-day event.
Under the banner New Venue, New Date, New Focus, the event is set to take place on Wednesday 30 October in the Great Cumberland Place convention space beneath London’s new Hard Rock Hotel at Marble Arch.
New conference sessions include Everyday People, covering diversity and gender balance issues, and Down To Earth, focussing on sustainability. They join Guardians of the Galaxy (international booking agents), Taking Care of Business (concert promoting), The Social Network (digital interaction) and more.
The event will have a particular focus on the new generation of professionals driving the industry and technologies that can aid the development of the live music sector.
More than 300 delegates are expected to attend from across the industry – including grassroots to national event promoters, festival organisers, operators of venues from clubs to stadiums, artiste managers, booking agents, service providers, industry organisations and politicians.
Early-bird registration costs £115 + VAT until 4 October, after which full rate is £140 + VAT. For more information,
